The tutorials are aimed at someone with no previous experience of programming, and they are designed to take the reader to the stage where they can start writing their own programs to solve practical, interesting applications.

LISP is a remarkable and powerful language, because not only does it govern the operation of a computer, but also it is a mathematical language of great power for processing processes in mathematics, logic, and symbol manipulation in general.
